Playoffs open thread: Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Oh look, the playoffs are on tonight!

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

I've always been a Cubs fan. I'm not sure why. Maybe it goes back to Ryne Sandberg, one of the first non-Twins players I remember hearing about who was really good. Maybe it has something to do with that Cubbie blue, which has some kind of ethereal appeal. But I'm cheering for the Cubs tonight, and will continue to do so until they're unavoidably ousted by the Cardinals.

Unless the Pirates win of course, or unless the Cubs win and then beat St. Louis, in which case: I called it.

Tonight's game starts at 7:00pm central, and you can catch it on TBS. Enjoy!
